We have been using Lawn Care MVP all year and he's been doing a great job taking care of our yard. He's also helped us a lot at the beginning of the year fix all of our sprinkler problems.
West Valley City, UT
I Have used Lawn Care MVP's services at least 5 different times in the last year on both my property and now my Mother n laws. They have met or exceeded my expectations for every job i have had for them. I have, and will continue to recommend them.
We do not have a sprinkler system so we were doing everything by hand twice a day, it was exhausting, our lawn still looked dull and we had weeds growing. Did alot of research on how much water the lawn needed & what weed products were safe for humans and pets to the point I was neglecting other things that needed to be done. I then started researching Lawn Companies and found Lawn Care MVP. Originally I just wanted to have the lawn aerated until Nick came over and spent time with me explaining that they now make sprinkler systems on timers that connect to the spout for the watering & other tips. He was so personable that after he left I called the office to get on their program for weed control and fertilizing and that's when Angie, the angel that she is, also took time to explain even more to me. Never once did I feel I was being a nuisance with all the questions I had. I don't have to water manually, my grass looks green and weed free, my dogs love it and I am now stress free.
We stock our sprinkler repair vehicles with an amazing amount of sprinkler parts. This helps ensure that your technician will show up ready to take care of almost any need. However, occasionally we will need to swing by a sprinkler supply store and pick up any additional parts we may need.
We work on any irrigation system, including the following brands; Rain Bird, Hunter, Irritrol, Toro Walla-Walla Sprinkler, Weathermatic, Nelson, Lawn Genie, Orbit, K-Rain, and more.
Every spring comes the time you will need to get your sprinklers turned on and make sure everything is working correctly. Even if you had us winterize your sprinklers for you there is always a chance of issues that arise with sprinkler systems.
Sprinklers are just like anything else we use around the house and unfortunately are not immune from normal wear and tear. A sprinkler head might fill up with water from snowmelt and refreeze causing it to break. Pipes can get pushed or squeezed from tree roots causing breaks or any number of other issues inside the system that can lead to your sprinklers not working correctly come spring.
Some of the things we do when our sprinkler technicians come out to do your Sprinkler Start Up:
We test every valve, every zone, and every head. This service is offered from March-May 1st. Any sprinkler start ups done after May 1st are considered a regular service call and subject to our regular service call rate.

We work on galvanized, poly, and PVC systems.
Some of our more common repairs include:
Yes, the first appointments of the day can be set. We usually arrive between 7:30 - 8:30 A.M. depending on if we need to stop and pick up parts before we head to your property. We can also arrange to call before we send our repairman to your location. We do respect your time and do everything in our power to get there at a workable time to you.
We don't give free estimates on repairs. On repairs, it is sometimes impossible to know what is wrong until you have dug up or completely repaired what is wrong.
You should be watering your lawn early in the morning, between 3 and 5 AM. Since it’s cooler and sunlight is limited. This gives your lawn a chance to absorb the water before the sun evaporates it.
You don't need to water your lawn every day. Doing so will train the root system to stay closer to the surface where the water is located. Watering deeply, 1-3 times a week, will allow the roots to grow downward in search of water, which in turn makes your lawn more healthy and less vulnerable to drought.
You can also test how hard the lawn is by pushing a screwdriver into your grass. A moist lawn will easily allow the screwdriver through. If it is difficult to press the screwdriver into the ground, it is too dry and needs watering.
Water 2 to 3 times per week.
Water 3 to 4 times per week.
